Getting To Grips With 2018 Fashion Trend :: The Fanny Pack
Or The Bum Bag As Us Brits Like To Call It
Why Would This Trend Continue in 2018 And Get Even Bigger?
OK so us ladies in our 30’s remember the bum bag, (or fanny pack to you non UK lovelies), as some very un-cool , never to be seen again, chucked out to the local charity shop 80’s throwback. Something similar to what The ‘very manly’ Rock has produced right here…
But word on the fashion street; in particular Moschino, Karl Lagerfield and the one and only Kendall Jenner, are huge supporters of the fanny pack trend becoming a huge style piece in 2018. Yes it’s made a bit of a come back in recent years but I’m talking making THE comeback in 2018.

Now there’s many a reason, (so we’re told), as to why we need a fanny pack/bum bag in our lives, one of which is this..
I’m not going to lie to you guys, I’m a huge supporter of the bum bag. Obviously the above reason is going to help me out loads after the traditional Christmas food stuffing but here are a 4 more actual good and valid reasons to love the fanny pack….
- There are now so many stylish variations to suit so many different outfits. Forget just the sporty look, you’ve now got leather, suede and other kind of materials to pimp your stylish out up!
- It’s super versatile. You can wear it however you like thanks to the adjustable strap, just like Kendall in the above pic and Sarah below.
- It’s hands free! This is my favourite reason being the practical gal I am. Taking the dog for a walk will be a breeeeze.
- The bumbag gives you extra security. It’s harder for people to grab off you and run with your goods and you’ll also less likely forget it if you set it down in a bar or restaurant as you would with a handbag. That bad boy is staying on you!
Not only are fanny packs practical for us busy ladies, they can actually now in 2018 be very stylish and add that final touch to your outfit. Check out how Sarah Jessica Parker is wearing her fanny pack for both day and glam wear.

We love a tan bag here at Love30 so this Jenna Suedette bumbag stood out to us. It comes in a great size, is practical for us ‘bits and bobs’ ladies and is super stylish too.
